2 stars To my belief, Mastodon are one of the more overrated bands in the area of Tech/Extreme. I do not know it seems that either it is the era of the Mega Therion(Mastodon is a mammal-beast that existed after dinosaurs)for unexplained reasons or the promotion is actually successful. Of course they have positives like the drummer's playing and some nice riffs but overall the music is a blend of what we have previously heard from other bands and is not so unique as their fans claim. Plus, the voice is horrible. Couldn't you find a more sucking singer? Many times, I find this album boring(their previous name Lethargy which means very deep sleep in Greek is more proper than this one)and uninspired, so it is not worth to deal with this. Because I have heard their previous works,this one is not better than them, so if I would give 3 stars(lenient as I am)to some of their works then this one deserves no more than 2 stars. Music only for their fans. The rest may continue their lives without learning about the American band.
